Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2002 Ford Expedition Owner Comments

problem #1

Aug 112007

Expedition 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 89,002 miles


The contact owns a 2002 Ford Expedition. The contact took his vehicle to the dealer for a routine service check and they replaced the lower driver side ball joints. A few weeks later, while driving approximately 25 mph, his vehicle was struck on the front passenger side by another vehicle. The contact suffered minor injuries. He drove his vehicle home and noticed a burning smell. The following day, the vehicle was towed to a local dealer. The dealer stated that both the upper and lower ball joints needed to be replaced, even though they were just replaced 500 miles ago. The contact also noticed that whoever replaced the ball joints did not check his alignment. The vehicle is currently still at the auto shop and has yet to be completely repaired. The current mileage was 89,500 and failure mileage was 89,002.
